Simon Says Challenge ..... Christmas Photomontage Inspiration !

Whooo what a posh title for this week's challenge over at Simon Says Challenge ! We bring you only the best and poshest of challenges you know ! hehehe !

Our lovely teamie Joy came up with the photomontage which is courtesy of Pinterest which is another site which has you hooked for hours on end !!

Now if that doesn't get your creative juices flowing, I don't know what will !

The lucky winner will of course win that super duper $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store ! Thank's again Heidi for being so generous.

I loved the vintage look of the photos on the montage so took that as my inspiration.

The DP's are BoBunny "Snowfall". I have distressed the edges of them and added some gold paint dapper to the edges. I also used a gold leaf pen I have too which is just gorgeous for adding some shine.

I used the Tim Holtz clock die.

The tag I used is from the MFT "Tag You're It" Stamp and Die set.

The Father Christmas stamp is by Inkadinkado and is called "Sketches Santa". I have coloured him with a mixture of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I have wanted to try and colour on kraft card for a long time and I was really pleased with the results.

The wooden snowflakes are from my stash but I see that Maya Road make very similar ones. I inked them with vintage photo distress ink and added some of the gold paint dapper on them too.

The ribbon and button are from my stash.

The chipboard letters are a Sizzix die I have had buried for a long time and I saw it being used recently in the latest edition of Craft Stamper Magazine. I cut them from chipboard and applied some light gold leaf flake mix to them. They look gorgeous in real life ! I think these gold leaf sheets would be very similar to what I used.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to being inspired by you. If you need any further inspiration then the DT have made some amazing cards for you again this week. Please hop on over to the challenge blog and take a look.

Have a great day and thank you for your visit !
